During our campus data walk last week, one of the things we discussed with the teachers and admin was building a collaboration menu for teachers to pull ideas from for their instruction. We are really excited to put this through to the teachers as you will have the option to take ideas as well as create ideas and share them with others across all content areas.
In the attachment included, it will provide you with each of the areas in which you can participate such as: vocabulary strategies, making a flipped PD, adding of video of you doing a best practice, completing a flipped PD, visiting another teachers' classroom, and writing a reflection of another teachers' video. Also included in the attachment, there are links that take you to each of the templates/links to folders to complete/see strategies and ideas.
There is also an incentive for participating in the Collaboration Menu. On the attachment, under each category, it tells you how many times you get your name in the drawing. At the end of each week, each teacher's name will go into the drawing for however many categories they have completed (it can be as many times as you do) and Cameron will draw 2 names for prizes such as: extended lunch, leaving an hour early, special parking spot, jeans day, etc. (IF YOU HAVE IDEAS FOR OTHER PRIZES THAT WE CAN GIVE AWAY, PLEASE LET ONE OF US KNOW AS WE ARE OPEN TO MORE SUGGESTIONS!)
If you create or complete a flipped PD, there will be a basket on Cameron's office door to which you will turn them in and one of the ILT members will sign off to give you credit.
FINALLY, there will be a drawing tomorrow as Ms. Castro and Ms. Garcia-Hernandez have both created new flipped PDs this week so their names will be entered!
Sorry for the long email! Please respond with any questions/concerns you have about this menu. Hopefully this email was clear but can always clarify anything if needed!
